A bit about the relevant fiqh rulings and fiqh views
First you should know that the sujud or prostration of the recitation (reading of the qur'an) also know as sujud at-Tilawa سجود التلاوة is not an obligatory act, you may do it or leave it as it is optional. An evidence for that can be found in Muwatta' Malik here.
Secondly there's no 100% consensus by ...
Salam. I myself have noticed this hadith in many places which even say that it is Ahsan Hadith. I am going to tell you a basic principle of Islam which is:
You won't be asked about your deeds which you didn't know about. But once you understood that it is prohibited in Islam and then you continued performing that bad deed, you will be asked and will be ...
It is performed like this: Stand facing the kaabah, say Allahu Akbar, do sajdah, say Allahu Akbar, rise from sajdah, do tasleem.
Women must cover their head when you do it, because sajdah is a constituent of salah and its requirements are the same as that of salah, including satr al-'awra.
O children of Adam, take your adornment (clothing) at every ...
The major Issue with sujud a-shukr سجود الشكر (or prostration of gratitude) is that scholars have different opinion on how to classify it (note the same sitatuion is with sujud at-tilawah, the sujud if you read a verse which orders a sujud in the Quran): some say it's (like) a nafl prayer some say it's a pure sujud only and not a prayer at all.
Bowing to other than Allah isn't a sin unless you believe they're divine or you want to worship them.
Ruko' has two meanings, bending over in a position of "bowing," or kneeling down on your knees without prostrating.
Sujod isn't considered as ruko' since it's a separate action in of itself. It's prostrating and touching the forehead onto the ground.
Yes it is allowed to do some dhikr and thanking Allah while prostrating as long as it is not to excessive. It is even recommended to perform dua' while prostrating:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication (in this state). (Sahih Muslim)
... So far as Ruk'u is ...
The prophet () told us to
... pray as you've seen me praying … (Sahih al-Bukhari)
This should apply to both men and women. So there's basically no difference in the manner we pray.
Nevertheless some scholars recommended that ladies should pray in a more compact manner (having their body parts:arms and legs closer to the body) to avoid showing men details ...
On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with
him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change
it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change
it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his
In Islam, there is a concept of 'Sujood al-Shukr' which means literally Sujood of Thankfulness.
This is a Sahih Hadith from Sunan Abi Dawud:
When anything came to the Prophet (ﷺ) which caused pleasure (or, by which he was made glad), he prostrated himself in gratitude to Allah.
Arabic, Book 15, Hadith 298
So, it is Sunnah to do Sajdah at a good occasion or ...
Imam was riding a horse and suddenly he stopped and went onto sujjud. His followers asked: Oh son of RasullAllah. Why did you suddenly do sujjud?
Imam: I just remembered a certain blessing of Allah and did sujjud.
Thanksgiving is recommended at all times. The most recommended are to physically prostrate, and if you can't do that then place your hand on your ...
I indeed appreciate your question a lot. Since commonly it is inquired a lot and looks interesting as well. It is declared that it is sufficient to recite every Zikr during the Ruku’ or Sujud (Sajdahs), and for the sake of precaution: it would be nicer if we recite a Zikr which be (at least) as much as the length of the following zikr:
سبحان ربی العظیم (...
